Hi folks,
Have any of you had your fuel tank split?
Been away for a while. Went to the field today and tried to fuel up.
Fuel was leaking through the cover. On further investigation I discovered that the neck on the plastic tank was separated wher it was formed.
Have any of you experienced this?
Let me know please
Thanks
D

Possible you overtightened the screw in the rubber stopper? The tighter it is the more the rubber is squeezed outward putting more pressure on seam of tank. Never heard of this happening before.
